Seaman of Reuters to join LinkedIn as news editor
Reuters digital editor Andrew Seaman has left the news organization to become a news editor at LinkedIn.
He starts his new job on Tuesday.
On Twitter, Seaman wrote, “It’s an honor to even be a very small part of this company’s amazing history. It’s also been a privilege to work alongside so many wonderful people – especially my current team.”
Seaman has been a journalist and editor with Reuters in New York since 2011. As a digital editor, he helped oversee the news organization’s social media and homepage. In addition to following the U.S. markets for the latest business news, he worked on ongoing stories and coordinated with the Reuters enterprise team on special investigations.
Before moving into digital editing, he was the senior medical journalist for Reuters. He started at the news organization in 2011 as a Kaiser Family Foundation fellow covering health policy and the White House in Washington, D.C.
Seaman graduated from Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism in 2011. He specialized in print journalism and investigative journalism as a Stabile Fellow at the school’s Stabile Center for Investigative Journalism.
